An Air India plane today took off for Tunisia to bring back about 200 Indians struck in war-torn Iraq.

A Boeing 777-LR (Long Range) is flying to Djerba to bring back these passengers. It will be an 8-hour long flight and will return tomorrow morning carrying the stranded Indians.

Air India has already been sending special flights to war-torn areas of Iraq and Libya regularly.
